state of the union address, our top priority should be doing everything we can to grow the economy and create good jobs. that is our top priority and it drives every decision we make and it has to drive the decisions that congress and everybody in washington makes over the next several years. that is why it is so troubling that 10 days from now congress might allow a series of automatic, severe budget cuts to take place that will do the exact opposite. it will not help the economy. it will not create jobs. it will visit hardship on a lot of people. here is what is at stake. over the last few years, both parties have worked together to reduce our deficit i more than $2.5 trillion. more than two thirds of that was through some really tough spending cuts. the rest of it was through raising taxes, tax rates on the wealthiest 1% of americans. together, when you take the spending cuts and increased tax rates on the top 1%, it puts us halfway to the goal of four dollars trillion -- $4 trillion in deficit reduction. thomas say we needed to stabilize finances. -- economists say we need it.

and a lot of damage to the economy. but because it's slower moving, there seems to be less impetus to get a deal done before the march 1st deadline. you're hearing maybe this would all be wrapped up and the continuing spending resolution, if that's not solved by the end of march could result in a government shutdown. there seems to be posturing for negotiating all at once, some time in march. looks like it's possible we'll go past the sequester. >> didn't the gop agree to the sequester deal? and if the gop wanted to stop it, they could have. how do you assess blaming the president for the sequester? >> i'm not sure that's really working out for them because it's true that both sides agreed to this. and now the president is saying, okay, i agreed to this but let's do something about it. the whole idea of the sequester is it would be such a bad thing that neither party would want to go through with it. we can disagree with the logic of even setting this up. but it is true that if you're the party that's refusing to do the negotiation, i think you're the one that looks bad. the fact that bot

for the economy. also something i think senator blunt did not cover but i would like to, there's going to be over 100,000 very low income residents in rural america that will lose their rental assistance that enables them to stay in safe and affordable housing. these families are generally female-headed households, or they're households welledderly or disabled -- welledderly or disabled. so my first question is for you, mr. werfel, if possible. and that would be as these furloughs, etc., take effect, do you anticipate it'll happen on day one, and it just happens in every agency and every department across the board, or will out be phased in -- will it be phased in over time? >> well, there's legal requirements for notice that i think deputy secretary carter mentioned. we have, what we'll see is agencies will start doing a couple of key things. first, furloughing is something that is subject to bargaining. so work is ongoing and will intensify as we approach sequester with union representation to make sure that the manner in which the furloughs are implemented are fair and equitable and etc., so t

the local economy and buying at stores and contributing and paying taxes so it is not necessarily a bad thing, but i think that people are a little tired of tying immigration to border security in many places. >> so let me just ask you more specifically because the republican criticism is the president hasn't done enough. the white house suggestion is that they in fact have done more for border security than has been done before and we know about the numbers of deportations. has the white house done enough? >> i think the white house has done quite a bit and frankly in today's political environment the truth is you always have to find something to complain about, something to throw rocks at, and border security just happens to be it for the time being or the conversation about the white house's essentially a statement of principles, so i think in the current environment something is going to get done. you can tell by all the activity. you can tell by the fact that tempers are high right now and all of that bodes well for the final passage of the immigration bill this session of congress

of gazprom economy in fueling so much corruption. so russia has a very different game to play here. we would like to see russia play a helpful role, in like providing the ssn-6 missile technology which seems to be the basis for the next missile launch we may see out of north korea. so there's no doubt that the globalization, the rising power or trying to keep power in the case of russia is effecting the leadership, decision-making how they think about north korea. let me bring this back to one point with china and the united states relationship. i don't think that china is going to cooperate with north korea just for the sake of north korea issues. that is to say, if they see the united states going in a different direction as jacques suggested rebalancing and supporting japan to be more assert tiff, they may decide, we're not going to cooperate in that with the united states because that is not in our chinese interests. what we're trying to do is convince the chinese we're not against a rising china. we want to see a growing middle class in china. we want to see a prosperous and more free c
